Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?

Pigs definitely can fly. They just have trouble making the reservations...

OK, is that pig on the inside or the OUTside? I'd think it'd break the glass upon impact...

Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?

Haha! Definitely on the inside just propped up against the center windshield. As far as breaking the glass on impact - I don't know- The glass is fairly thick and as someone who's had to beat one out with a chalk (window removal - non-preferred method) I can vouch for how tough these things are (although arcing in the NESA system can cause de lamination which can cause localized weak spots) and heating them up too quickly certainly can cause them to crack. Other than that they take a bit of abuse before breaking.

...Stay tuned to see where Pigasus ends up (oddly enough the airfield we are operating out of this time of year is...Pegasus).

Well, I know they are tested for bird strikes, but for pig strikes?? A big hog can go a few hundred pounds. And if pigs can fly...

PS: Cool photo.

Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?

What kind of plane is that? Is it an airliner?

Bacon always knew pigs could fly, but that is a really cool way to do it!

Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?



At AGO-3 - 9760 feet with the worlds largest snow mobile. -31C with 30+ Knot winds. (windchill of -60F = Frostbite on exposed skin in less than 5 minutes).

Hey Machman, Sure you've heard this one:

--------
A couple of F-15's are escorting a C-130 Hercules, and their pilots are chatting with the pilot of the transport to pass the time. Talk comes ‘round to the relative merits of their respective aircraft. Of course the fighter pilots contend that their airplanes were better because of their superior speed, maneuverability, weaponry, and so forth, while they're putting down the Herc’s deficiencies in these areas.

After taking this for a while, the C-130 pilot says, "Oh yeah? Well, I can do a few things in this old girl that you'd only dream about." Naturally, the fighter jocks challenge him to demonstrate.

"Just watch," comes the quick retort.

And so they watch. But all they see is that C-130 continuing to fly straight and level..

After several minutes the Herc pilot comes back on the air, saying "There! How was that?"

Not having seen anything, the fighter pilots reply, "What are you talking about? What did you do?"

And the Herc pilot replies, "Well, I got up, stretched my legs, got a cup of coffee, then went back an took a leak."

-----------

The Pigasus has already made it to the South Pole but no time for pictures on those runs yet.

Stay Tuned...

oh yes, only in a Herc can you do that! The C-130 is a great plane, an absolute classic, especialy if you consider thar over 2000 Hurcs have been built...
btw, what c-130 modle it that? the C-130H? or C-130J?

Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?

LC-130 H2/H3 (L1/L2) and modernized Navy R Models (L1A).

The Pigasus has made it to:

WAIS Divide (S79 29.00 W119.35.00) Elev. 5920 Ft.
South Pole Station (S90 00.00 W180 00.00) Elev. 9280 Ft.
AGO 3 (S82 45.30 W028 35.34) Elev. 9790 Ft.

First Herk flew in 54' (prototype- Lockheed Skunkworks), and has evolved into one of the most reliable, versatile airframes to date logging more than 20 million flight hours.

...Don't get me started on the J model (Hey Lockheed - ever feel like you took a few steps backward!) We'll see what the future is - we have been flight testing the 8 Bladed props, new electronic valve housings, and soon Allison-Rolls Royce will be releasing the new T56 3.5 Ceramic turbine Mod - even comes with a slightly redesigned compressor inlet housing (with coating) (AR AR AR AR - Tim "The Toolman" Taylor Grunting)

We might grow "up", but all that means is our toys get bigger!

Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?

yea, im not a big fan of the J modle, the bay was tweaked in, well, not the best ways. I didn't know that the Hurk was made in the Skunk works, did Kelly Johnson head the program?

Re: Who said PIGS don't fly?

Willis Hawkings was the lead designer. Kelly Johnson was chief engineer at Lockheed at the time. During the development of the 130 he advanced to VP of R&D, then on to VP of Advanced Development Projects(Which would soon garner the nickname skunk works - due to it's proximity to a plastics factory). So I guess it isn't accurate to say it was designed by Skunk Works, it was designed partly (and signed off on - reluctantly) by KJ and the VP of Lockheed. Guess KJ preferred Fast planes that could be armed (he thought that the L-206 (soon dedicated model 82) would destroy Lockheed - guess he called that wrong).
